I get seriously excited when I get the chance to show off a new bridal designer, it’s like being a kid in a candy store! So many beautiful things to look at, so many designs to get inspired by! Melbourne based designers Arpie and Maral popped up on my radar last year and I was delighted to hear from them recently.
With a clean, structured designed sense, the girls take inspiration from the finest fabrics and embroidery techniques to create unique gowns tailored to each bride’s style and sensibilities. I love the solid beauty of the fabrics they’ve chosen in this collection, they look clean and sophisticated but still lend themselves to unexpected beading and detailing to take the gown from something plain to something really customised and beautiful.
Each gown is custom made for it’s wearer with a four step process- including five fittings to ensure your gown fits like a glove.
The Arpie & Maral girls don’t just make gowns either, with their techniques in french beading they’ve designed their own range of beautiful veils, hairbands, hair flowers and jewels. Made using Swarovski crystals, the hair accessories range is available to purchase through Arpie and Maral’s online store.
